Presented by Ted Kesler
Sunday November 1st 7:00-8:00 EDT
In this interactive session, based on Ted’s recent Language Arts article, “I Hear You: Teaching Social Justice Through Interactive Read-Aloud” (January, 2020), participants will learn how to plan and present powerful interactive read-alouds for exploring social justice issues with children, in grades K through 6.
Ted will first discuss why interactive read-aloud is such an effective literacy practice and why it matters to provide books that are “windows, mirrors, and sliding doors” for children’s own lives. Ted will then show some recommended websites and social media sources for finding and vetting social justice books for children. We will then plan for an interactive read-aloud of a social justice picture book together using a planning worksheet that Ted will provide.
Participants will gain a strong foundation for findings high-quality picture books with strong social justice themes and planning impactful experiences for their students.
